    Ed Bloody Roman is the owner and builder of Baker Guitars now apparently.

    This was supposedly built personally by Baker for himself but whether that's true or not is anyone's guess.

    Not my kinda' guitar anyway and i certainly wouldn't buy a new one if it meant putting money in Roman's pocket, the Heinous little leprechaun.:lol:

    Ed Roman. I talked to him not to long ago and he was trying to get me to have him make my stuff.

    I was like... Umm No. I like making my own products.

    Wasn't there another Baker-7 on eBay awhile back that was Gene's personal guitar but that he auctioned off personally??? IIRC, the asking price for that one was much higher than this one--which of course sets of the Ed Roman alarm bells. :)

    That guitar is an original Baker guitar; it has nothing to do with Ed Roman stuff. However, the scale length is only 25", unlike his later personal 7 (which was 26.5" I believe), so I'm staying far away. Considering his new line of instruments (http://www.finetunedinstruments.com/) are going for 4K and up, that's a killer price.
